Professional Development

Supporting staff to grow as professionals and leaders

When staff members have ongoing opportunities for new learning, to reflect on their work, and to share and collaborate with colleagues, they grow as professionals and leaders — and improve their practice and support for our students. That's why leadership is a focus area of the district's blueprint for success and why we're committed to providing high-quality professional learning.

Districtwide Professional Development Days

City Schools has multiple districtwide, systemic professional development days each school year. During these days, school-based staff have the opportunity to engage with peers, colleagues, and experts to deepen their learning. Districtwide professional learning provides equity and consistency in curriculum and instruction across all schools, offers peer-to-peer support, and builds educator capacity. 


By June 2023, teachers and school staff will have multiple opportunities to engage in professional learning focused on wholeness, literacy, and graduation to meet district and school-defined metrics in these three areas. 

Systemic professional development days for 2022-23 will be district-led, with staff from district offices offering learning opportunities for school-based staff. Sessions are either all day or half-day (2.5 hours). Educators are asked to select sessions for both morning and afternoon; registration is required for all sessions. Please note that some sessions are offered in person.
